Resource files get created temporarily and then get checked. If they do
not pass the validation, the get moved to a .q file for further analysis
(aka.  resource file generator debugging). They never get deleted
automatically. This should not happen with the most recent version of
drbdmanage, or there is a bug in resource file generator.

So, you can delete them, they have no purpose besides debugging.

If they are not leftovers from a drbdmanage version < current version,
so they *really* got created by the current version of drbdmanage, steps
to reproduce would be helpful.
